Resoulution detected by monitor wrong

Hi, My onboard intell HD 4000 video resoulution is set to 1280 x 768. I use a samsung HD TV as my monitor hooked up via HDMI cable. THe TV used to always dispaly the resoulution that the video from computer was set at. Either 1024 x 768, or 1920 x 1080. The latter makes everthing to small so I settled at 1280 x 768. but when i press info for the samsung it reports 1920 x 1080 when the video from computer is set at 1280 x 768. It nver did this before. Is this because of display scaling to full Screen. Wierd...??????? PLease give some info...

The resolution you have set for your TV is higher than 720p but lower than 1080p, however there is no middle ground with TV's, it's either one or the other, so it reports as 1080p.
